Best Excuses to Get Out of School Swimming Lessons
My high school requires a written note from your parents for this to qualify as an acceptable reason to be excused.
As much as I hate getting periods, I'm still thanking them to this day for all the chlorinated hell they saved me from.
Will only work if you're female, hit puberty and only used once a month as that's how the menstrual cycle works.
Add on that you forgot panty liners and you're out of your lesson for the week!
This method is not great. My teacher just ask me to go get some spare pants from the thousand-year-old lost and found and wear it in the pool.
Ah, the classic, It usually can work if done once, but if done again, they might make you put a spare pair on.
But then you'll hear the dreaded "Spare costumes. Put one on." from your teacher.
I've had one and they'll just ask you to try on embarrassing spare costumes.
This one would probably work, don't quote me on that though, it depends on the teacher sometimes.
I used to really hate swimming because of many ridiculous reasons including my race.
20 percent of people who use swimming pools have admitted urinating in them.
And..it's actually a misconception that chlorine in water turns your eyes red, it's actually a mixture of urine and chlorine.
My friend is allergic
Make it look like you do and act like you do as well.
This could work especially if you have an earache.
Like the nausea excuse, act like you have.
To make sure they don't look, say that you've got an open wound down in the groin.
Definitely going to work
What if the teacher looks at your ear?
It's a pretty good excuse especially if you come to school with an earplug.
This will get you out of swimming for sure. You most likely got STDs from the gym teacher anyway.
Make sure to shout really loud so all the other students hear you. "I HAVE (insert STD here)! "
Definitely doesn't work
Alright, then get that life jacket on and do 10 laps!
This would never work
Does not work
My teachers won't care.
Teacher: What does that have to do with YOU swimming? Me: I just, like, don't want to make him feel left out...
Nah, not too effective if the teachers can see nobody else is physically getting hypothermia.
It's horrid in the Changing Room, people see you naked, watch you and you are half naked in it.
